Thaxted residents urged to take part in village survey

THAXTED Parish Council needs the input of ALL its residents to help it to understand how people feel about the town.

The council recently circulated a questionnaire to every home to give residents the chance to express their views on whether various local facilities are adequate and whether they can be improved.

Amongst other things, it is looking specifically at community, sports and leisure facilities, parking, shops, the market and employment.

The information will be used to write a Parish Plan, a document which will guide the council in its decision-making and provide an evidence base for services and facilities in Thaxted.

Further copies of the questionnaire are available from the Community Information Centre or Thaxted Primary School reception. Completed questionnaires can be left at Wayletts, the school, CIC, library and Thaxted Surgery. It will take no more than 20 minutes to complete.

Volunteers will be on hand at the CIC between 9am–12 noon on Friday (June 21) to answer questions and help residents complete questionnaires. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

Questionnaires can also be completed on the town website at
